TechBytes Audiocast – Episode 28 – 30/01/11

Hosts: Tim (OpenBytes) Roy (Techrights) Gordon (Thistleweb)

Featured Track: “Chur” from Countdown

The three red carpet stars are back for yet another show.  There’s much to talk about since its been over a week since the last episode.

As usual sound issues play a part in the show, which adds to the merriment and a competition of sorts to the listener who can work out what is/who is responsible for the annoying taping on one of the mics!

Talking Microsoft figures – What Microsoft says and what the experts do are usually two different things.  We look at online losses and what exactly is making money for Microsoft.  Whilst there is still no official word on WP7 and its sales, we do discuss the figures that have been released.

Microsoft Office – What is its future market? We look at alternatives.  A Microsoft cash-cow running dry?  andf progress onto open standards where we consider – Would they be the real death of Microsoft Office?

Sony’s solution for root key hack? – Is a more open system really that bad?

We then look at subjects such as ACS:Law, the Google “censorship” before ending the show on another great rock/metal instrumental.

The show is hosted currently on TechRights here, however the release of a dedicated TechBytes site is imminent!
